1/48 Airfix Hawker Hunter with CMK resin sets

The Hawker Hunter saw very long service with the RAF. The type enjoyed also huge export success. So, no wonder then that in 2019, British Airfix released the 1/48 scale model kit portraying this important and iconic jet. Special Hobby, in their range of CMK resin sets, subsequently prepared several sets for the builders to make this nice kit even more life-like. Set 4387 betters the cockpit area, 4388 offers new undercarriage bays. Three more sets come to improve the landing flaps. Although the kit does have them open, they lack any internal structure. So, set 4389 brings the F.6 version flaps while the different style flaps of the F.6A/FGA.9 are correctly portrayed in set 4390 - with a different-shaped cut out for the external fuel tank as well as different structure. The export Hunter F.58A style flaps are then offered in set 4402. All these sets combine both the resin parts and photo etches. Those of you looking for just some less costly improvement, do not miss our Quick&Easy pilot's seat without the harness Q48357 or with them  Q48358.
